Abstract : Published reports on-the-job training (OJT) in industry were summarized in Part I including: Frequency of OJT and various forms of training in industry, Advantages and disadvantages of OJT in industry, Recurrent problems of apprenticeship training, Characteristics of military OJT programs, Results of investigations on different methods of conducting OJT, Federally funded OJT programs for disadvantaged workers, and The four step method for conducting OJT. Information on social learning theory (Bandura) and its applications were reviewed in Part II. The principles of Bandura's social learning theory were outlined. A number of rules for conducting training more effectively were derived from social learning theory. Research on observational learning in making therapeutic behavior changes and in teaching interpersonal skills (e.g., counseling and interviewing) were reviewed. Applications of social learning theory to industry were examined.
